[RC][phpBB 2.0.15]htaccess better than relog in ACP

Post by Ptirhiik »

For those (like me) who don't feel the phpBB 2.0.15/3.0.0 reloging to access the ACP when a .htaccess/.htpasswd does already the job better and in a more reliable way, you can try this :

Code: Select all

#
#-----[ OPEN ]------------------------------------------------
#
admin/pagestart.php
#
#-----[ FIND ]------------------------------------------------
#
if (!$userdata['session_admin'])
#
#-----[ BEFORE, ADD ]-----------------------------------------
#
//-- mod : htaccess better than relog in ACP -----------------------------------
//-- add
// check if .htaccess is available
if ( ($userdata['session_admin'] == true) || @file_exists('./.htaccess') )
{
	$userdata['session_admin'] = true;
}
//-- fin mod : htaccess better than relog in ACP -------------------------------
#
#-----[ SAVE/CLOSE ALL FILES ]--------------------------------

must you not check also for a htpaswd file? Now check it for a htaccess, but if there one is, but with nog auth system, you don't have to relogin :)

The .htpasswd file can stand anywhere, that's why it is not checked. Under sub-directories, the main use of an .htaccess is to protect the directory. If you are in a different case (really I can't figure which one for a script second level sub-directory), just don't install this : this one is for people using .htaccess/.htpasswd authentification : if the .htaccess is not used in this purpose, you are not in this case.

I use this for long time:

/admin/.htaccess

Code: Select all

AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /path/.htpasswd
AuthName "Autoryzacja"
require valid-user

<Limit GET POST> 
Order deny,allow 
Deny from all 
Allow from 127.0.0.1 - your ip
</Limit> 
<Files "*.php"> 
Allow from 127.0.0.1 - your ip
Deny from all 
</Files>
/path/.htpasswd

Code: Select all

login:password

Could I simply use this:
<limit GET POST PUT>
satisfy any
order deny,allow
deny from all
allow from localhost
</limit>



Thank you for your cooperation, since I'm new to this... :wink:

What else do I have to do besides applying that code? And do I have to replace anything within that code?

- If you have an .htaccess/.htpasswd authentification way to access the ACP, nothing more to do that what's in the first post of this topic,

- replace ? Do you see any "#---[ REPLACE WITH ]---" in these lines ? :)

You need to make sure you have .htaccess/.htpasswd files in place. More about this can be found on this topic, as well as Google. ;)

all we need now is an addon that will auto kill admin session after x mins or x hours, as thats what vb does :) in vb you can set it to kill your admin session after some time and it will JUST ONLY kill your admin session
